A companion album for the upcoming film Moonage Daydream will feature a collection of rarities and unreleased material from throughout David Bowie’s career.

The album will be available on digital streaming services starting on Sept. 16, the same day the film hits theaters. A 2-CD version will follow in November, with a vinyl edition due in 2023.

Highlights from the LP include a previously unreleased live medley of "The Jean Genie" / "Love Me Do" / "The Jean Genie.” The track was recorded live at Hammersmith Odeon in 1973 during the final Ziggy Stardust concert, and features Jeff Beck on guitar. Other rarities on the album include an early version of “Quicksand” -- a song released on 1971’s Hunky Dory -- and a previously unreleased live version of “Rock ’n’ Roll With Me,” recorded in 1974.

In addition to rare and previously unheard material, the Moonage Daydream album will include unique mixes of Bowie material created for the film. Among them, “Modern Love (Moonage Daydream Mix),” which you can listen to below.

Directed by Brett Morgen, the filmmaker behind The Kid Stays in the Picture and Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, Moonage Daydream is the first officially sanctioned documentary about Bowie.

“Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music, Morgen’s feature-length experiential cinematic odyssey explores Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey,” proclaims the film’s press release.

Excitement surrounding the project has been building since a trailer for the movie was released in July.
